Are people ranking the wrong hostal here, maybe confusing it with HOTEL Los Frayles? We found it to be a great disappointment, way too expensive for what they offer. A small, very basic room with a bathroom with a shower that barely gets you wet (if you want it to be warm, that is) and toilet you can barely sit... More

Good clean basic rooms, the staff was helpfull and friendly, they do not offer breakfast but they have a nice roof terrace for sunset views. Warm showers, wifi connection sometimes leaves the hostal. During our time it was the best price offer in town. Quality-price was good enough. The location is close to restaurants, shops, small supermarkets and bars, were... More

This place is ok for a night or 2. We were driven there by a taxi driver who told us its the 'best price', just like everyone else. We had literally just come off a nightbus, so were obviously easily lead. The room was 50 soles, which was apparently discounted if you get the tour with them. We didn't get... More

I will have to agree with one of the last reviews about the guys who run the place offering dance lessons and massages, they did the same to me, harmless though. Paracas is a very, very small town. This hotel is a decent option if you don't need anything too fancy. I stayed there with my friend for three nights... More

Went to Paracas with a frend in July. Both of us are 22 yr old females. The taxi driver brought us there promising low prices, but what we were initially told was much higher than our budget. The owner told us that if we booked the Islas Ballestas trip with them, the room would be much cheaper, nearly half the... More

Our room was pleasant, bright and clean with a small balcony and sea view. We paid more than in the interior of Peru and it didn't include breakfast. There's a lovely terrace at the top of the building, and wifi access. Situated close to the port, a couple of shops and reasonably priced restaurants. Staff arranged two trips for us,... More

We were just taken here by a taxi driver, and the place was decent, nothing special. Our room faced the hallway and it was loud and hot. We left a sentimental item in the room because the illumination was bad. We called and Manuel organized to give it to us in Huacachina. No one ever came. He made all kinds... More

The room was about 50 soles, so I can't really complain. However, it did have a funny smell, it was hot, and the bathroom wasn't very clean (it was actually kind of stinky). I only stayed for a night, but the staff seemed mostly inexistent. My room was facing the street, so it was also a bit noisy.

Last year me and a group of 12 of my friends aged only 15-17 went adventurously backpacking around Southern Peru for just over a month. We were on our first week and having spent a couple of nights in Lima we were expecting the same very basic settings. But we were proven wrong. Even though, we only spent one night... More

The service here was awful. The staff sat in a room upstairs watching TV and acted very put out if you asked them a question. The reception area was left vacant with the room keys sitting on the desk and the front door open. The plaster was falling off the walls in the room and I was greeted by a... More
